Pride In Pill MBE. Community guardians since 2014
Established since 2014, Pride In Pill MBE is a multi award winning local community volunteering group, based in the Pillgwenlly area of Newport. We have regular group meetings and are gaining new members from the community. The litter pick side is well established with Pride In Pill (PIP) organising hundreds of events. In addition, litter such as bottles, cans and plastics get recycled.
In 2018 some of the volunteers took part in sharps training allowing us to be called on by the residents of the city to pick up thousands of disregarded needles. This has proven to be a huge part of Pride In Pill and has made us a household name beyond Newport, Cardiff, Swansea and throughout the rest of South Wales.
PIP – Supporting the homeless since 2018
In 2018, Pride In Pill had a boost of new volunteers who were (and still are) highly self-motivated. Each and every single volunteer and team member continue to thrive on PIPs success. Shortly afterwards a hugely successful city wide campaign called “Pride In Pill – Supporting The Homeless Project” was born. Sadly the number of people living in crisis in our city is growing, so we are delighted to be working with other well established groups and organisations to help people live the life they deserve.
We have now been supporting the city’s homeless ever since by providing food, clothing, toiletries and other essentials. In addition we’ve also gained trust with the community and have been privileged to see people go from homeless to housed.

A few moments with PIP’s Paul Murphy
“From humble beginnings in 2014 to multi award winners almost a decade later, Pride In Pill MBE continue to do Newport proud. Our main community roles include environmental clean up days and supporting Newport’s homeless population. In addition, we are busy every Easter and Christmas providing Easter eggs and toys for children who have to spend Christmas Day in hospitals throughout South Wales. None of this would have been possible without our volunteers, sponsors and the kindness of your donations. Pride In Pill would like to thank each and every single one of you whole heartedly”.
